Abstract: Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a key emerging technology for supply chain systems. By attaching RFID tags to various products, product-related data can be efficiently indexed, retrieved and shared among multiple participants involved in an RFID-enabled supply chain. The flexible data access property, however, raises security and privacy concerns. In this paper, we target at security and privacy issues in RFID-enabled supply chain systems. We investigate RFID-enabled Third-party Supply chain (RTS) systems and identify several inherent security and efficiency requirements. We further design a Secure RTS system called SRTS, which leverages RFID tags to deliver computation-lightweight crypto-IDs in the RTS system to meet both the security and efficiency requirements. SRTS introduces a Private Verifiable Signature (PVS) scheme to generate computation-lightweight crypto-IDs for product batches, and couples the primitive in RTS system through careful design. We conduct theoretical analysis and experiments to demonstrate the security and efficiency of SRTS.
